On March 30, the Port of Everett joined the Everett Yacht Club (EYC) in celebrating the grand opening of its new clubhouse near Anthony’s Woodfire Grill at the Port of Everett’s Waterfront Place.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring Everett Yacht Club, Port of Everett and City of Everett leadership was followed by an open house of the newly renovated building. The event also served as a membership drive for the club.

“The Everett Yacht Club has a long-standing history on the waterfront and has been a valued partner of the Port for decades,” Port Commission President Tom Stiger said.  “As the largest public marina on the West Coast, the yacht club provides a great benefit and resource to our boating community. We look forward to many more memories being made here at the waterfront, and watching the next generation of boaters continue the legacy at this new clubhouse.”

The clubhouse has been three years in the making. In 2021, EYC leased the Port’s former Marina Office building in Marina Village and invested over $1 million to renovate it. The club’s reciprocal moorage moved to South E Dock near the building that same year.

The new multi-story clubhouse at 1720 West Marine View Drive has indoor and outdoor spaces for member meetings, classes and events. It features a kitchen, bar and elevator, plus convenient access to the Port’s nearby Commodore Plaza and South Marina facilities.

“This clubhouse isn’t just a building, it’s our new home,” Everett Yacht Club Commodore George B. Sauer said. “It’s a place where friendships flourish, laughter will echo through the halls, and cherished moments will be shared. It’s a space that embodies the spirit and comraderies and community that define the Everett Yacht Club.”

This is the fourth clubhouse for the Everett Yacht Club, which formed in 1907. The club was originally located on an offshore float at Camp No. 1 south of Weyerhaeuser Mill A (now the Port’s South Terminal). That float was moved between Piers 1 and 2 at the Port of Everett Seaport in 1927, when recreational boating was sited there.

A clubhouse was built in 1931 west of the Great Northern Railway Depot. In 1968, the club relocated to a new two-story building on 14th Street.

“I’m very proud of the Port of Everett and all of the great things happening on our waterfront, like the completion of the Everett Yacht Club’s brand-new clubhouse,” said City of Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin. “The yacht club is one of our city’s oldest organizations – starting just 14 years after Everett incorporated – and this new facility is going to be an important part of the new vibrancy happening here.”

EYC’s most recent space, near the Port’s Boxcar Park, is in a state of disrepair. It is programmed for demolition to make way for a new hospitality/restaurant concept in Phase 3 of the Port’s Waterfront Place mixed-use development.

The Port has invested over $165 million into its marina assets since the early 2000s and more than $150 million to date to unify the marina and surrounding uplands as part of the Waterfront Place mixed-use development, with more to come.
